- Brett Bebber studies the histories of postwar and postimperial migration, racism, and integration in Britain, and the history
of the British empire. In particular, he is interested in the ways in which the decline of the Empire and the surge in migration
to postwar Britain reshaped national identity and social relationships in the metropole. He has written on the intersections
of race, gender, and violence in postwar Britain, and studied the cultural implications of social control, working-class violence
and political racisms in modern British culture.
- He has published works analyzing the cultural struggles that emerge in sport and leisure in Britain, and has analyzed how
forms of leisure mediated and catalyzed broader social conflicts. His newest research threads include a study of migrant
integration and civil rights in Britain in the 1960s and 1970s, and an examination of working-class conservatism and responses
to black and Asian migrants to Britain in popular culture.
